CONGRATULATIONS TO JACKIE HESMER ON HER RETIREMENT!

When Jackie first joined Northern House School, Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister – The Falklands war had been won and the Brighton bomb was yet to happen. Liverpool had just won the English First Division (there was no Premier League in those days). George Michael was top of the charts singing ‘Careless Whisper’ and The Val Doonican Show was a mainstay of Saturday night television. It was the age of typewriters – laptops and mobile phones, indeed emails, were all still to come. Jackie’s first employment contract was typed up on a clunky old typewriter and letters to her from the school and from school to her were sent by snail mail using a 15p stamp.

All that was back in 1984. Since then, generations of children and staff have come and gone, but Jackie stayed. She has worked as a classroom assistant and more recently as an ambassador for the school, visiting and advising mainstream colleagues. She is admired by all as a sensible, grounded,  quiet and unassuming professional, loyal to the core. Jackie, we salute you and thank you for your long service. We will all miss you and wish you a long, happy and healthy retirement.
